WMU Partners with Kerafast to Facilitate Reagent Sharing

Has your lab created antibodies, cell lines, proteins or other bioreagents? Western Michigan University is offering a new program to help university researchers market and distribute materials developed in their labs.

WMU has partnered with Kerafast, a reagent company whose primary mission is to make unique research tools easily accessible to the global scientific community. The program enables researchers to share reagents with a quick and simple Material Transfer Agreement. Kerafast markets the materials, handles selling and shipping logistics, and returns a portion of the proceeds to WMU and the contributing labs.

For more information, or to discuss distributing your lab's reagents through the program, visit kerafast.com or contact Clark Bennett. You can also start the process by filling out the Intellectual Property Technology Disclosure Form.
